Non-Common Properties Report

Discussion created by ben_dahljelm on Feb 7, 2020

The properties available to edit in Designer are set in the properties definition file (.prp) in the Central Library folder. Either through Databook or translations, non-common properties can enter a schematic. Given these properties aren't defined to the tool, they are difficult to edit and delete. 

This script will look for a prp file. It then scans the components of the design and makes a dictionary of their properties. It will then check the items in that dictionary against the text in the prp file. A few extra checks have been added for system level properties that start with the "@" symbol. 


Select a .prp and click the "Generate Non-Common Properties Report" button to generate the report.

The report can be used to update the .prp file through the Property Definition Editor of the Central Library.
